Willie Green has just released Days of Future Past, a mixtape/compilation of his "Greatest Hits". Why a greatest hits you ask? Because as he's stated today, he's "dropped over 200 tracks with his own production or remixing in the last 6 years". He and DJ Mo Niklz wittled that discography down to 38 and chose to include Adam Warlock's Infinity Gauntlet alongside bangers like Crocodile Tears from Billy Woods, Had to Be Me from Premrock and Nightmares from Open Mike Eagle (among many others). This shapes up to be a must have and it's FREE.
This year Gajah released a solo LP called Poverty's Prodigy on the Acid Lab Records label. Now he presents the Remixed version which features an Eastern influenced production by Agartha Audio for the track, Debt. Gajah and Nasa have also begun work for 2013 to collaborate for an EP so look for that as well.
